Myanmar National Undergoes Successful Liver Transplantation in Delhi

Doctors in Thailand and in his home country Myanmar did not give him more than six months to live, but 63-year-old Yacoob Zamal found hope //and new life in a Delhi hospital which successfully conducted a live donor liver transplant.

The businessman from Mandalay underwent a 10-hour liver transplant surgery at the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, a leading private hospital in the capital, about a month ago and is now getting ready to return home.

Yacoob has been living with uncertainty since 1998. He first consulted doctors in Myanmar and then went to Thailand for treatment.

"Though I got temporary relief from every single treatment, there was no permanent relief," he said, adding that he had even tried naturopathy from China.

Before coming to India, he had spent over 10 million kyats ($1.5 million) on his health.

In a live donor transplant, the patient and the donor are kept in two parallel operation theatres and a part of the donor's liver, the only regenerative organ in the body, is taken away and implanted in the receiver's body. A donor needs to be between the ages of 18-55 with weight ranging from a minimum 55 kg to maximum 85 kg.
